My experience with the Guild team was great. Owen and Cliff were always informative and made sure they communicated with us along the way on the status of our loan. They went above and beyond to make sure our closing was a success.

Owen Edwards is an excellent Mortgage Lender! He's extremely knowledgeable and very trustworthy! He also has the fastest loan processing anywhere! I highly recommend him! I was helping a friend buy a house. He showed me his statement from another mortgage company because he thought the closing costs were too high. At the time he was closing in 7 days. I recommended he call Owen at Guild. Owen was able to save the client a substantial amount on closing costs with the same interest rate and he still closed in 7 days! This past week I had a client who asked me if he should refinance. I knew we could lower his rate but he only had 10 years left and said he plans to pay it off in 5 years. We shared his info. with Owen. Owen was able to reduce the rate but said that since he plans to pay it off within 5 years based on a break even analysis it made since to keep the current mortgage. You can trust Owen to do the right thing!
